Need College Money?

College Scholarship Offers for ALL U.S. and International Students

Leadership and Community Service Make the Difference!

 

Demonstrating Leadership and Commitment to Community Service Can Make the Difference!

 
For a student with a lower GPA or one who is unable to demonstrate financial need, there are many scholarships based solely on community service, leadership and/or merit (GPA and/or SAT/ACT score). This is my answer to parents who say, “My child will never receive a scholarship because we make too much money,” or, “My child is not an honor student or a minority.” It is true that many scholarships and federal financial aid packages are need-based: calculated from the student’s and parents’ income from the previous year. That is why I cannot stress enough the importance of finding and applying to the scholarships for which you qualify.
 
Many students know that their family income will not qualify them for financial need-based scholarships or federal financial aid. They need to begin immediately establishing the foundations (as addressed in the workbook) for the profile that would qualify them for a community service, leadership, faith-based, and/or merit-based scholarship.
